The Goblin Song

Here's my recent design for my incredible friend Nora Unkel and her fantasy-musical thesis film, The Goblin Song! The Victorian-era story is based on this beautiful poem and is about two sisters tempted by alluring goblin men.

She flew her NYU film crew out all the way to her hometown in Davis, California to film, and since I couldn't go help with script supervising/set photography (my animated thesis film strikes again!) the least I could do was design this for her promotional campaign. This was a blast!

Here's a great sneak peek video on her film, which looks absolutely gorgeous, by the way!

Cleaning animation for my senior year film was giving me the major urge to switch things up and paint!  
I really want to keep working on this but...duty calls! Back to clean-up!

Dress doodles

I'm so in love with dresses by Zuhair Murad, I just had to sketch some myself, just to feel that beautiful form and design...! I want to draw more in livelier, more flowy poses next time.
His imaginative, lush, romantic designs remind me what I love about fashion--transforming a melange of materials into visions so exquisite and dreamy, they absolutely make your heart ache

Joy Ride

One cleaned up frame from my animated senior thesis film!
Must rush off now, many more frames to go...

3/18 edit: here's the animated shot!

Le Carnaval des Animaux

I took the Student Animation League out to sketch at the Museum of Natural History last Friday! It's one of my favorite places in NYC.
Here are some of my animal sketches---a variety of 1-minute gestures and some longer poses, which max out at about ten minutes.

Speed-paint study from late last night! Set a 30 minute time limit and resolved to avoid the color picker! 
Dreaming of the west.
